If you are stuck having to watch all the Toronto International Film Festival action from the sidelines, fret not—another aspect of the festival will now come straight to your computer screen. The overlong, occasionally awkward press conferences that accompany each of the big films at TIFF have been uploaded to YouTube, so you can squirm in your seat while pretending to not play Candy Crush like the rest of the journalists in the room. This is literally hours of material, from big marquee titles like “Gravity,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Prisoners,” “Labor Day,” “Enough Said” and more. It’s like you’re there! Only not.
Below you’ll find press conferences for “12 Years a Slave,” “Prisoners,” “Labor Day,” “Enough Said,” “The Railway Man,” “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “Gravity,” “The Invisible Woman” and something called The Cronenberg Project, which seems to be some kind of mass, interactive art installation conceived by and in loving tribute to Canadian madman (and TIFF favorite) David Cronenberg (who is on hand for the press conference).
